Nathan's wyrm is finally finished!

Except maybe for teeth - he is gummy at the moment.

Now that I have a sewing machine, making things like this will be easier cos having to stitch all the main seams twice by hand.

ETA: This wyrm is my own pattern, based on what I remember of making a number of these dragons (Sage by Carol Saunders). He is not hard to make but is quite fiddly!

  1. I love the wyrm! Still have the one you made for me, he lives in our lounge, with the (toy) bats :-)

  2. Oh this wrym looks like something that comes from the dragon charmer. She's a lady on etsy selling pattern for this sort of thing. I've gotten so far a mouse and a rat pattern. I was planning to recreate some of my SIL pets that have passed away I just haven't yet found time to sit down and try. :( I thought they would be Christmas gifts. Maybe I'll try and start one next weekend. Was a wyrm easish to make?
